DistUpgrader Improvments

Registered by Michael Vogt on 2006-06-08

The following additional features should be considered:

    * use a already downloaded CD to get packages for the upgrade
    * qt frontend
    * i18n for the upgrade notes
    * a "UpgradeIfInstall" section for packages like nvidia-glx so that the tool refuses to continue if it can't upgrade those packages
    * a mechanism to resolve conflicts if two meta-packages conflict (e.g. ubuntu-desktop/xubuntu-desktop because of the {xubuntu,gnome}-system-tools package)
    * SMART support
